Blessed be the name of Yahweh

I don't understand how people can get away with saying that Job's conclusion to the loss of his children -- "Jehovah hath given and Jehovah hath taken: let the name of Jehovah be blessed" (Job 1:21) -- is his own fallible understanding of God's ways and not an infallible statement. In the very next verse it says "In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong."

(What spurred this on? Listening to Jesus to a Child, by George Michael.)
